(I apologize for the HTML mail formatting in the mail before...)

Well, the dir "/opt/csw/lib/sasl2" is Blastwave standard. They tend to
put everything under /opt/csw/.

Running "stings" on /opt/csw/sbin/saslauthd and /opt/csw/lib/, I
only got the path /opt/csw/lib/sasl2 (except for the path to the
configfile for saslauthd).
I'm not sure if it's right, though...

But I'm trying to compile an own version of cyrus-sasl on Solaris 10 to
see if it works better...
At least, I know where the files should go this time.
